With summer around the corner, who doesn't want to be near a park? Apartments steps from Manhattan’s outdoor oases are on top of this week’s Hot Dozen -- meaning more Streeteasy.com visitors clicked on these rental listings over the past seven days than any others.
Gramercy Park is only a block from a convertible two-bedroom apartment at 221 East 21st Street and 3rd Avenue listed at $2,750/month. The 700-square-foot apartment has plenty of closet space and the building has an elevator, along with laundry in the basement. Shares are OK, making the well-maintained (and well-located) apartment surprisingly affordable, though judging from the photos it may be on the ground floor.
Just two blocks from Central Park and in a historic townhouse is a no-fee three-bedroom apartment at 169 West 83rd Street and Amsterdam Avenue listed at $4,300/month. The space boasts 125-year-old white oak floors and new stainless steel appliances.
A little further down, an extremely compact $1,350/month studio apartment at 103 West 70th Street and Columbus Avenue is exactly one block from Central Park and just a bit further to Riverside Park the other direction. The apartment ain't exactly beautiful, the bed is lofted, and we can't quite tell if it comes with an entire kitchen, but pets are allowed and there is a live-in super. Not only is the unit close to Central Park, the busy intersection of 72nd and Broadway is only a short distance away, making the trip to the 1, 2, 3 trains and Trader Joe’s a whole lot faster.
